Biological processes used in wastewater treatment, organic waste management, biological resource recovery. Focus on fundamental principles of biological processes and process design based on kinetic and stoichiometric principles. Processes include anaerobic digestion for biogas production and aerobic wastewater treatment.
Students should be able to evaluate and design biological processes. Develop simple mathematical models to simulate treatment processes.
Stoichiometry Microbial transformation processes Introduction to design and modeling of activated sludge processes Anaerobic processes, industrial applications, sludge stabilization
The performance assessment is offered every session. Repetition possible without re-enrolling for the course unit.
Mode of examination
